Business Litigation and Debt Collection

We understand that our commercial clients are not in business to engage in litigation. That is why when disputes over business matters arise, our clients know they can rely on our skill and experience to resolve the matter in their best interests.

We analyze our cases not only from a litigation perspective, but also with a focus on the business, such as the financial effects and impact litigation may have on the economic objectives of the client. Our clients’ business objectives drive our approach to handling their litigation.

We can assist in collecting money from debtors on:

  • Breach of contract actions

Our collections process:

  1. File Review—Analysis of your file to determine the quickest and least expensive way to recover the debt.
  2. Demand letter — We send a letter to your debtor (sometimes with a draft of a lawsuit) demanding payment. If the debtor responds to the letter, we work with you to see if you want to discount the debt and to set up a payment schedule.
  3. The lawsuit — If the debtor does not respond, we file a lawsuit, and work to obtain a judgment against the debtor even before a trial. If a trial becomes necessary, we vigorously defend your right to collect payment.
  4. Judgment — A judgment generally gets the debtor’s attention, especially when we use it to freeze the debtor’s bank account. We also attach liens on the debtor’s real estate and move to file wage garnishments to secure payment on the debt.
  5. Jail — If the debtor fails to cooperate and comply with court orders, we try to get the debtor held in contempt of court and seek to have the debtor jailed.
